Some in the comments thread at J.E. Skeets' hilarious Basketball Jones post already made the Gollum/Smeagol connection. I'm just hoping Douby will call Vitaly Potapenko a "stupid, fat hobbit" sometime this season.
(If you want to see the greatest rookie photo ever taken, go no further than here. I hope and pray every night that guy gets a start at MSG early in the season, and that he does this pose when it happens. This must happen.)
